Coaching Wisdom from Charlie Francis

“Many coaches are at a point in their evolution where they are imitating techniques and philosophies which they have read about, purchased, inherited or been told about not realising that someone else’s training program can never be optimal for their athlete and may even be harmful.

There is no cookbook of coaching techniques which will apply equally well to all athletes.

One has to be able to thread together scientific knowledge and sport technique while listening to ones own feelings and the feelings for the particular athlete in question – it is at this point that coaching ceases to be a science and becomes and art.”
